1. Make a 110% commitment to the job

Likely, this employment opportunity is not your dream job. But it is a job. Rather than be discouraged, wishing for something better, commit to doing your best regardless of the tasks required of you.

  1. Go the extra mile

Volunteering to stay late, take on additional tasks, or assist a co-worker not only solidifies that 110% commitment, but also demonstrates you have initiative. And employers the world over love initiative.

  1. Be enthusiastic and appreciative

Make a concentrated effort to display an attitude that clearly says, “I’m happy to be here, and I appreciate the opportunity.” No one likes a Gloomy Gus or Disgruntled Doris. A pleasant demeanor will be remembered for a positive contribution to the workplace environment.
